Over the past five years, humanitarian agencies have been working to put in place systems to respond to sexual and gender-based violence, as well as to support community-based efforts to prevent such violence. Clinical management of Rape Survivors describes best practices in the clinical management of people who have been raped in emergency situations; it is intended for adaptation to each situation, taking into account national policies and practices, and availability of materials and drugs.

This guide is intended for use by qualified health care providers (health coordinators, medical doctors, clinical officers, midwives and nurses) in developing protocols for the management of rape survivors in emergencies, taking into account available resources, materials, and drugs, and national policies and procedures. It can also be used in planning care services and in training health care providers.
